Didn't see the VT700 either, but I did use the VT750 from an adjacent year to map things out in consideration of the advice in the health article swifty linked too.
As far as posture, the new handlebar positioning makes it more natural to sit with a straight back, and without my shoulders rolled forward so much due to the lower original grip.
As an additional benefit, I've got more confidence in my sideview mirrors now that they are positioned a bit higher. And not gonna lie, its added some fun to the ride (maybe just because i'm adjusting to a "new" feel), kind of feels more like flying with the arms outstretched a little more.
Definitely recommend this quick adjustment to others.
